Will JR stick with his philosophy of bringing in quiet staff that will conform? Or will he bring someone in who will rock the boat?

This is the guy who wouldn't even consider Harbaugh as a coach

U gotta believe Rivera is gone after this year if JR brings in an outsider.

Must be an old article. Reggie McKenzie is running the Raiders now.


Yeah, it was from back in January.

So you give Polian no credit for 11 out of 14 winning seasons, hiring one of the best coaches in the games history (Dungy), and 9 consecutive playoff appearances? Yeah, he's crap...


Sure I do, I just don't think he's the personnel genius many think he is. The Colts had a crap defense for many of those 14 seasons.

Floyd Reese was the Titans GM during some of their successful years. Last I heard I think he was a consultant somewhere. I'd have to look him up.

He and Richardson might be able to craft a good working relationship. Of course, Reese is also remembered as the guy who drafted Pac Man Jones.


I remember Reese getting the job with the Giants. And aren't you guys forgetting something, just like with the players, your new GM needs some experience with the Chargers. Of course barring an AJ Smith firing - that would be a little easier said than done. You'd have to bring either Beathard out of retirement or Butler out of the grave. Randy Mueller would fit that quota since he's Smith's assistant. Richardson and AJ Smith working together would probably be the best "Grumpy Old Men" duo in the league

Nick Caserio from the Pats is who I would very much like to get the gig.

Director of Player Personnel for NE since 2008

Bring in Cowher, make Kevin Greene the DC, pull Chud's head out of his ass or hire someone else.

Reed just said on twitter that Brandon Beane will now act as GM for the rest the season

This contradicts Joe Persons statement saying there would be no acting GM the rest of the year.

We had a guy with a Chargers connection. We just fired him.

Meuller is the only realistic possibility there. Experienced? Yeah, but I'm iffy on that idea.
